Special Call VC6IARU:

Tim Ellam VE6SH, IARU President, will be operating at the Calgary Amateur Radio Association (CARA http://caraham.org ) club station using the special call VC6IARU as part of a multi-operator, single transmitter team, giving out the rare “AC” multiplier, for members of the IARU Administrative Council. Both SSB and CW will be used. The station will be active from 1200 UTC July 12 (Saturday) and ending 1200 UTC July 13 (Sunday).

RAC callsign assigned to VY2

The official RAC HQ station this year is VY2RAC, being operated by a three-man team who requested the call sign more than a year ago. VY2RAC will be the only station sending the exchange “RAC”, standing for the official HQ station of Canada’s IARU Member Society (RAC). Under the contest rules, there is only one HQ station allowed per member country, although unlike non-HQ stations it can be a multi-transmitter station.

IARU HF Championship info and link to rules may be found on the IARU website: IARU CONTEST WEBSITE

Good luck to everyone participating this weekend!

Distracted Drivers Legislation: Bill 41 Recieves Royal Assent! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   

NB Legislature Bill 41 "An Act to Amend the Motor Vehicle Act" received Royal Assent this morning (May 21, 2014).  This means that licensed amateurs are now permitted to use their radios while mobile.  It is suggested that we carry our wallet-sized copies of our Industry Canada Certification with us as this is proof that we fall within the exemption under the Act.  It is also recommended that we keep a copy of the Bill in our vehicles as it might take a while for police officers to become aware of the change.  You can download a copy of the Bill at http://www.gnb.ca/legis/bill/pdf/57/4/Bill-41.pdf .


A very heartfelt "Thank you!" for the efforts of all those (RAC and local hams) who participated in getting this Act amended.
